Lit – Slip lyrics

I shoulda called but it was late and you were sleeping, my dear
I would hate for you to hear what I was putting you through
I'm tryin' hard to be the man I know that you think I am
I'm really glad you weren't there but now I wish you were here

Cuz we're so wonderful
And so untouchable
And just when I thought it was under control
Everything just starts to...

The pillow burns I toss & turn from all of the things I say
You should've known better than to ever listen to me


Right through my fingers
Finding it's way to the tips
Well I'll try and forget
But all that I taste is your lips
Cryin' & kissin' me

[guitar solo]

We're so wonderful
And so untouchable
You're the biggest part of me
We're so wonderful
And so untouchable
And just when I thought it was under control
